Trees on my property in NYC: what is the law if it hangs over to my neighbors property, can he come after me or my insurance? Or since (I believe) legally he can cut anything thatís over his property itís his problem to trim etc to avoid damages?

It depends if the tree is rotten or otherwise defective.  If its rotten and you knew that it was rotten, you could be on the hook if the tree falls and causes damage to your neighbor's property.  If the tree is in good condition, you are probably in the clear. 

Your neighbor is allowed to cut the overhanging branches down if they are bothering him but he cannot touch the main body of the tree (courts refer to this as "self help").  You definitely cannot force your neighbor to cut the tree himself.

Depends what your purpose is.  If you already know what the document says and just need to get the information in front of the court but aren't too concerned about 100% accuracy, just go for the cheapest certified translator you can find.  I've used Donnelly Language Solutions and TransPerfect.  Both are good. 

Also, keep in mind that there is no official standard for translators.  That means that even a translation prepared by a non-certified translator will generally be accepted by a court as long as it is accompanied by an affidavit stating that the translator is fluent in both language.
